EX Emerald is the name given to an expansion of cards and Theme Decks for the Pokémon Trading Card Game released only in English and European languages. It is notable for being composed of several Japanese sub-sets, as opposed to a Japanese expansion.

EX Emerald was conceived to tie in with the release of Pokémon Emerald, a trend Nintendo have followed since their occupation of the TCG. Since no Japanese set correlated with this, Nintendo used cards from other sources.

Before the release of this set, the Japanese producers of the TCG requested a list of popular cards from English players. Pidgeot, Dark Dragonite, Dark Tyranitar and Dark Ampharos were frequently mentioned, leading to belief this was the inspiration behind the production of the Trainer Card Battle Frontier, which restricts these cards' abilities.

EX Emerald was the first set to be released after the Pokémon TCG website had introduced a new card spoilers feature as a tournament resource. However the file containing information on all the new set was uploaded before the Prereleases, and was discovered and distributed over the internet. The file was then taken down, but not before the data had been copied onto several major fan-sites. Since this incident, new card spoilers are only uploaded after the set is commercially released.

  • This is the only EX Series set not to have Pokémon Star after their debut.
  • This was the first English set to contain holographic Basic Energy cards (popularly called Matrix Energy cards because of their design), which replaced the reverse-holographic card in every third pack.
  • The secret box topper for this set is Farfetch'd.

The Prerelease card for this set is Grumpig. In the United States, Prereleases were held on the weekends of 30th April/1st May and 7th/8th May 2005.
